The tuxies around here are not the only ones who can get their snoozes on. The torties and humans know how to nap just as well as tuxies. With the humans being retired, plenty of opportunities arise for an afternoon lie down. But no good nap goes unaccompanied as evidenced below.




It would appear that I am not as adorable in my sleep as Calista Jo. I suspect none of you are looking at me but if you are, STOP IT RIGHT NOW! Concentrate on Calista’s tortilicious furs and large, kissable toes.

World Spay Day

World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS, Humane Society International and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. On the last Tuesday of February, they call attention to spay/neuter as a way to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who are likely to be put down in shelters or killed on the street. The 21st annual World Spay Day is today. Spread the message!

This is what’s been happening at our local no-kill shelter, Angels of Assisi.

Sunday Selfies Blog Hop Thank You

Cat4What a terrific hop we had this weekend. We had our best turn-out to date with 56 participants (including ourselves). And thanks to The Island Cats, a squirrel joined our hop for the first time. Thank you so much to everyone who joins us and supports this endeavor. It is far more successful than we ever anticipated. Hope to see you back this coming Sunday. And, if you have the opportunity, please tell all your friends how much fun it is!

I love how cats can sleep in all kinds of positions– including triangles!
(Love the spay day “deflated” idea.)

What an adorable combination of nappers! You both look so cozy cuddled up together like that. It must have been a nice nap. Like Mom always says… it’s not a nap unless there’s a kitty involved! Sweet dreams, girls!
Sampy sends as many kisses as there have been dreams since the dawn of time, and we all send lots of love!

We think it’s neat that you got a picture of your mom snoozing. Our mom hides the flashy box thing when she sleeps!

Aw! There’s nothing better than a nap together. 🙂

P.S. – I took some pictures of your sweet honorary sisfur Swizzle this weekend; she wasn’t exactly into posing, so she looks kind of grumpy in them. MOL. I’ll send the best of the lot soon. Hugs!

What is more glorious than curling up for a snooze with a warm cat (or human!) for a nap……you both look totally content – nothing better than that!

Love, Pam (and Sam)

There’s no point in letting a human nap alone. Cats are masters of napping. so it’s good that you helped out!
